The drunken wannabe sailors finally made it over here saturday with the help of light winds. I went down to the docks to have a look and wasn't impressed in the least with the crowd. A lot of people I know are against the Figawi race and the fact that it is held on the Memorial Day Weekend. I heard reports of several drunk people falling overboard and puking all over town. Nice.
Anyway, I took a few shots of the event.

A few participants coming up on the Boat Basin under threatening skies-
Entering the Boat Basin-
Let the drinking begin-
The main beverage of choice-
Flags, masts and rigging-
The mosquito fleet all lined up-
